Making Our Voices Heard: Women of Color in Academia $182.00
Editors: Harriet Curtis-Boles, Diane M. Adams, Valata Jenkins-Monroe (Alliant International University, San Francisco, California)
Book Description:
This book provides a compelling and informative look into the experiences of women of color in academia. Using personal and scholarly narrative the women in the book convey a poignant and richly descriptive account of the challenges they faced, the strategies they employed for survival and thriving, and the contributions they made to transform their institutions. From the seasoned faculty member and academic administrator to the entering graduate student, it is a must read book for women of color in academia. They will resonate to the voices of the women in the book, and hear their needs articulated in perceptive and practical ways. In the tradition of critical race theory, this book also fulfills the purpose of providing White professionals and students a new perspective of the personal and professional world of women of color in academia as represented through their eyes and realities.
